Wheater....oh no. I really really hope he doesn't get a cap it would be embarassing.

I get the feeling it's going to be Rooney & Defoe starting with Owen being used as a sub. I think Defoe deserves a start with the way he has been playing.

Why is Theo in there? Wheater has done well this season but good enough for England? Defoe does deserve a start.

I think Beckham will make the 100 and that will be him.

wheater wont even make the next cut, like curtis davies situation last call up

i dont see how it would be embarrasing though. its his first season of first team football and he has shone for such little experience. if people like upson are getting caps then theres no reason at all for wheater not to get one although there is a lot better CB's at the moment but i do think he may be one for the future.

if anything would be embarrasing its theo really - he has scored 2 prem goals all his career and both against brum in a 2-2 draw. he assisted adebayors late goal in Milan and thats all hes done all year. at least wheater has played every week. and wheaters scored twice as many goals as him all season.....

Walcott is unusual in that he left Hart and Lennon in the u21s...... Compared with the hype surrounding Walcott when he first join gunners he is nowhere near as good as they hype surround several other youngsters around the world i.e. pato, bojan etc - Bale before he got injured had done more than Walcott.... should have played some more first team footy before he went.

Who else would you have in the squad if not Wheater for CB? i reckon he deserves a go if he makes the cut cause noone gives a toss about friendlies.... Upson/Davis probably would have got in but injured and Ledley King IMO is among the best CBs in England but is basically on his last legs from all reports.
